San Antonio Teacher Suspected of Improper Relationship With Student, Faces Termination and Police InquirySource: Google Street View

A San Antonio high school teacher and football coach has been incarcerated for allegedly engaging in an improper relationship with a 17-year-old student, police reported. The educator, 27-year-old Andrew McCown, was apprehended yesterday after the North East Independent School District brought his conduct to the attention of authorities back in March, according to KSAT.

McCown stands accused, of having initiated an unlawful liaison with the student beginning in January, investigators theorize. The district responded by sidelining him with administrative leave, a measure taken as the investigation unfolded. A NEISD spokesperson detailed to KSAT, "Andrew McCown was hired at Roosevelt High School in the fall of this school year. In March, several students reported that he was having a relationship with a 17-year-old student."

The inquiry into McCown's conduct included interviews with the alleged victim. The accused, however, did not cooperate with the investigation, as per the San Antonio Police Department. His previous track record reveals an arrest in 2022 for DWI and unlawful carry after a traffic stop in Central Texas, a detail uncovered by KENS 5.

SAPD's Special Victims Unit plans to reach out, to previous educational institutions that once employed McCown, which includes Robinson High School. The police have also asked for any other potential victims to present themselves and share their accounts. The NEISD's executive director of communications, in a statement obtained by KSAT, expressed that the "district will move forward with the termination process."

No additional information regarding the arrest or the specifics of the alleged relationship was immediately available. The investigation remains ongoing as authorities work to clarify the extent of McCown's inappropriate interactions and whether more students might have been impacted. Anyone with potential insight or claims regarding the case has been encouraged to contact SAPD directly.
